Surahi Lantern is in stores now!

'Surahi Lantern' for me has been one of most fulfilling projects that I have done of late. Its inspired by surahis or earthen pots used in India to carry water in the villages and its perfect for hot summer days to keep water cool

100% Design Fair London

Recently I was at 100% Design in London.The fair is a mix of hardware materials and flooring exhibits, office furniture, close to no surface design (except for the lovely Kirath Ghundoo), all in all a fair I will go back to maybe after 5 years. Vitra and Magis were the only two big recognizable design-led companies and I think it would be a while till this fair would become a Maison&Objet.

The illustrative world Craig Redman and Karl Maier - Part 2 (Installations)

The most amazing installation of the duo is '72dpi' in an underground car park in Sydney with vibrant color blocking transforming a dull grey boring parking lot to a bright colorful installation. Kudos!

The illustrative world of Craig Redman and Karl Maier - Part 1

Today is part one of a two-part series dedicated to the world of Craig Redman and Karl Maier; the amazing designers, illustrators and  thinkers. Their website, Craig&Karl is a delightful museum of their fantastic work and a must see. Love the world clocks on top of the page with a Craig and a Karl timezone. Even though they live in different parts of the world but collaborate daily to create bold work that is filled with simple messages executed in a thoughtful and often humorous way. 
Craig&Karl have exhibited across the world, most notably at the Musée de la Publicité, Louvre. They have worked on projects for clients like LVMH, Google, Nike, Apple, Vogue and The New York Times.

Rahul Mullick and his magical pics

Photography is an art, rather I think its harder than painting or sketching as its about capturing a moment, which one has no control over. Rahul Mullick, a photographer by hobby whose inspiration are his 2 girls, family and friends. He and his Canon DSLR have made some magic these past 14 months. His 
photographs are not only captivating but engaging. They are warm, honest and emote. You can see more his work on here
